A man in Saudi Arabia has reportedly divorced his wife after learning that she was a smoker before they got married. According to media reports, the husband who is a Saudi national, told his lawyer last week that he wanted to divorce his wife because he was afraid she might resume smoking.

He that since there was “no guarantee” that the woman would not start smoking again, her habit might “hurt his social status”.  The man’s lawyer stated that the wife admitted to her husband that she used to smoke before they married.

The husband also elaborated that he dislikes smoking ladies. As a result, he filed for divorce. The court ruled in favour of the man and ordered the lady to repay the dowry she received from her husband at the time of the wedding.
